Sliding Puzzles, you move the different pieces around using a free spot. When
every part is at its correct location, it shows a picture.
Puzzles can be a lot of fun, they are often either frustratingly hard or
boringly easy and their replay value is quite low. Until now.
My goal was
to use the biggest advantage of the Lego System – it’s unreached modularity –
to create a Sliding Puzzle that comes with customizable designs and adjustable
difficulty through a modular design.
How it works:
decide how many puzzle pieces you want to use. From a very easy 2x2 square up
to a mind-breaking 5x6 puzzle, every size is possible, because of a modular
design for both the frame and the ground that allows easy customization without
disassembling any parts. I used mostly larger pieces here to make the whole
structure stable and to achieve smooth sliding.
the difficulty level is adjustable through the number of free spaces that you
can use to slide the puzzle pieces.
transportation or display, you can prevent the parts of the puzzle from moving
around by using a round lock piece that attaches to the ground with a technic
axle. I included 3 of them (and of course 3 attachment points) to work with the
different difficulty levels.
pictures just show some different designs for the frame, the lock and the
puzzle picture. Of course, the possibilities are endless and you can customize
you own individual Sliding Puzzle. Dots and spare parts work well here.
The Fine Print:
Structure uses 1126 pieces and measures approximately 30x26x4 studs in its
biggest configuration. Every part used is available, also in the particular
